ISC schools would like to widen access to children, even if their families cannot afford the fees.
ISC schools give more than twice as much in means-tested bursaries and scholarships than non-means-tested scholarships, totalling almost £483 million per year, an increase of 4.1% compared to last year.
There are 39,358 pupils receiving means-tested bursaries and nearly half have more than half of their fees remitted. Means-tested bursaries are worth an average of £11,807 per pupil per year.
Many of our schools have launched major fundraising programs to be able to widen access to children from disadvantaged homes.
Bursaries are valued at over £465 million per year
